By The Numbers: Week 9, 2019

Another week in the books, and I’m happy to report that the Packers improved to 7-1 on the season. The undefeated 49ers are the only team with a better record in the NFC, and the undefeated Patriots are the last team left in the AFC. At this point, I’d wager that the Packers have had a harder schedule than either of those teams, and I honestly think we could beat either one of them in a big game, and we’ll probably be able to see that happen later in the post season. Whatever the case, I had a very good week with picks and if I can keep up this sort of pace I should be able to finish this season out stronger than the last couple. Take a look:

Vikings 27, Redskins 13 – Correct
Seahawks 28, Falcons 10 – Correct
Bills 24, Eagles 20
Bears 27, Chargers 21
Lions 20, Giants 10 – Correct
Texans 21, Raiders 17 – Correct
Jags 23, Jets 13 – Correct
Rams 30, Bengals 10 – Correct
Saints 35, Cards 23 – Correct
Titans 21, Buccs 20 – Correct
49ers 26, Panthers 24 – Correct
Colts 27, Broncos 24 – Correct
Patriots 42, Browns 20 – Correct
Packers 31, Chiefs 20 – Correct
Steelers 28, Dolphins 13 – Correct

Week’s Score: 13-2
Season Score: 77-43

A nice improvement of the overall record there. Honestly I thought I was going to get 100% this week due to the fact that the Bills should have beaten the Eagles, and the Bears should have beaten the Chargers. But so it goes. Honestly at this point I just hope my team doesn’t implode and that we keep up this amazing season. Let’s make picks for week 9:

49ers 27, Cards 21
Texans 23, Jags 20
Bills 24, Redskins 13
Titans 21, Panthers 17
Vikings 24, Chiefs 20
Jets 21, Dolphins 13
Eagles 21, Bears 10
Colts 27, Steelers 23
Lions 20, Raiders 10
Seahawks 28, Buccs 16
Browns 20, Broncos 10
Packers 35, Chargers 14
Patriots 31, Ravens 28
Cowboys 24, Giants 20

I’m taking a couple of risks here, thinking that maybe the Browns can outplay the Broncos who no longer have Joe Flacco (not that he’s done much this season). I also think that the rest of these teams should be able to come up with the W, but in the end it is an “any given Sunday” sort of a game. I just can’t wait to trounce the Chargers, one of the local teams around here who have obnoxious fans despite being to only one Superbowl and losing it. These guys are clowns and I think they should move on from Rivers, but what do I know? We’ll check back in next week and see how it goes. Until then.
